Tom Felton, better known as Draco Malfoy, is set the join the cast as a CSI in the police department who's suspicious about our favorite hero Barry Allen.

It Blogger Aimee Song is the newest brand ambassador of SM Makati! Famous for her bold and always fashionable outfits, Aimee is the perfect face to represent The SM Store in Makati. During the media launch, Aimee shared the different trends that she thinks are pretty cool from rocking a nude matte lippie, mixing gold and silver accessories together, braids, denim on denim, and of course the latest fashion craze, chokers. 


Victorious was and will remain to be one of the best shows of Nickelodeon. While the show ended a long time ago, that doesn't mean that the cast members don't keep in touch anymore. In celebration of Ariana Grande's birthday, the cast of Victorious got together from Avan Jogia, Matt Bennet, Daniella Monet to Leon Thomas. While there were a few notable faces that were missing like Victoria Justice, we're happy that the rest of the Victorious cast are still friends IRL even after four years off air. (

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
